The resurrection is God’s emphatic and eternal declaration:
Jesus of Nazareth is Messiah and Lord. “God has raised this Jesus to life…”
Jesus of Nazareth was clearly revealed to be the the Messiah through signs, wonders and miracles. However Jesus of Nazareth was rejected…handed over to death and nailed to a cross.
Since he is dead and buried, Jesus cannot be the everlasting King.
“But God raised this Jesus to life”…proving for all time that Jesus really is the Messiah…God’s promised eternal King.
